Trail Town Festival set for Heritage Trail

Joe Napsha
Bicyclists ride the Westmoreland Heritage Trail on the trailhead at B-Y Park in Trafford.

Bikers, walkers and joggers can join in the Westmoreland Heritage Trail’s first Trail Towns Festival on June 1, which coincides with National Trail Day.

Start at one of the trail access points — Roberts Parcel, Braun/Carson Street or Saunders Station and travel to Trafford’s BY Park for music, food, ice cream and fun activities from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. From 4 to 8 p.m., travel any trailhead at Saltsburg, Sara Steele or Rangos/Athena and proceed to the Fireman’s Pavilion at Slickville for live music, food and beer.

Each community is scheduled to host local businesses supporting the event.

Registration is $10 per person. Children age 10 and younger participate for free. Raffle basket tickets can be purchased.

Register through the trail’s website. Those registered have a chance to win grand prizes that will be drawn at the WHT monthly board meeting.

Money raised by the event will go towards trail maintenance and growth.

Maps of the trailheads can be found at

Supporters also can follow trail events on Westmoreland Heritage Trail’s Facebook page.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
